Natasha Devon's Clicks - How to Be Your Best Self Online is the perfect guide for young people navigating the digital world.
There are three billion people online. Each of those people has their own biases, agendas and issues. It’s little wonder when young people step into the digital world and are bombarded with ‘hot takes’, calls to cancel ‘problematic’ individuals, trolls, fake news and celebrity sales pitches they’re likely to find it overwhelming and confusing.
This book wants to change that. It will teach young people how to:
- See and evaluate all sides of an argument
- Spot fake news
- Explain their ‘take’ persuasively
- Use the internet to campaign for a fairer world
- Get the most out of their online role models
- Show allyship to marginalised groups
